The awards season began in earnest last evening with the IFP sponsored Gotham Awards.
Here are the female winners:
Breakthrough Director - Dee Rees - Pariah - hopefully this is the first of many awards for Dee this season. Pariah opens December 28.
Best Film Not Playing at a Theatre Near You - Scenes from a Crime - directed by Blue Hadaegh & Grover Babcock
Breakthrough Actor - Felicity Jones - Like Crazy
Best Documentary - Better This World - directed by Katie Galloway and Kelly Duane de la Vega (too bad it didn't make the short list for the Academy Awards)
Charlize Theron also received a career tribute. Young Adult opens December 9.
Full list of winners. They streamed the ceremony last night. I watched some of it. If you are interested, here it is.
